5 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung S27E310H

Vastly Faster Response Time

The Samsung S27E310H has a response time of 1ms, however the Acer T232HL and the Asus VA325H are both 5ms response time PC monitors (4ms slower), the LG 38CB99W is a 14ms response time PC monitor (13ms slower) and the NEC MultiSync E221NBK is a 6ms response time PC monitor (5ms slower). More ...

The response time on a PC monitor is a measure of how quickly the monitor reacts to image data sent by the computer's graphics card. Fast response times are particularly important for gamers, who should ideally look for a response time of 8 milliseconds or less.

A faster (shorter) response time is better because fast moving graphics will appear smoother and the gaming experience will feel more responsive.

Cheaper by $19

The Samsung S27E310H is $167 cheaper than the Acer T232HL, $69.94 cheaper than the Asus VA325H, $699.99 cheaper than the LG 38CB99W and $19 cheaper than the NEC MultiSync E221NBK.

Cheaper to Run by $80 Over Five Years

Over five years the Samsung S27E310H is $13 cheaper to run than the Asus VA325H and $80 cheaper to run than the LG 38CB99W. More ...

Energy Efficiency Rating is Superior

The Samsung S27E310H has a European Union Energy Efficiency Rating of "A+", whereas the NEC MultiSync E221NBK has a rating of "A".

Better Brand

Samsung PC monitors have an average rating of 84.5%, but Acer only has an average rating of 82.1%, Asus only has an average rating of 77.9%, LG only has an average rating of 83.4% and NEC only has an average rating of 76.4%.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung S27E310H

29% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Samsung S27E310H is a 27" PC monitor. That's 4" bigger than the Acer T232HL (23"), 4.5" smaller than the Asus VA325H (31.5"), 11" smaller than the LG 38CB99W (38") and 5.5" bigger than the NEC MultiSync E221NBK (21.5"). More ...

The display diagonal is a measure of the size of the monitor. It is measured from one corner of the screen to the diagonally opposite corner of the screen.

A bigger display diagonal means that the screen will be larger and better for displaying lots of content or for seeing the detail in photos and videos.

Smaller Display Resolution

The Samsung S27E310H has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels pixels (as are the Acer T232HL, the Asus VA325H and the NEC MultiSync E221NBK), whereas the LG 38CB99W has a display resolution of 3840 x 1600 pixels. More ...

'Display Resolution' indicates the maximum resolution that the monitor is capable of displaying. 'Resolution' is the amount of pixels that make up the image displayed on the screen.

A larger display resolution means that the image will be more detailed, crisper and contain less visual flaws such as blurring.

Only Low (1000:1) Typical Contrast Ratio

The Samsung S27E310H has a low (1000:1) typical contrast ratio (as are the LG 38CB99W and the NEC MultiSync E221NBK), but the Asus VA325H has a medium typical contrast ratio. We do not know what type of typical contrast ratio the Acer T232HL have. More ...

The contrast ratio is a measure of the ratio between the brightest part of the image and the darkest part of the image.

Monitors with a high contrast ratio will produce higher contrast, more vivid images.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Samsung S27E310H has received a Kagoo Score of 83, whereas the Asus VA325H scored 87.

Fewer Sellers

The Samsung S27E310H is only stocked by 3 stores, but the Acer T232HL is stocked by 6 retailers, the Asus VA325H is stocked by 9 shops and the NEC MultiSync E221NBK is stocked by 4 sellers. More ...

The fewer the number of shops that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Older by 10 Months

The Samsung S27E310H is 10 months older than the Acer T232HL, one month older than the LG 38CB99W and one month older than the NEC MultiSync E221NBK.

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Asus VA325H

HDMI

The Acer T232HL has an HDMI, however the Asus VA325H, the LG 38CB99W, the NEC MultiSync E221NBK and the Samsung S27E310H do not have this feature. More ...

HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a specialised interface for transferring high quality audio & visual data from a data source (such as a DVD player or computer) to a TV or monitor.

An HDMI connection on your monitor allows for extremely high-quality audio/visual transmission from a computer or DVD player, meaning your films will sound and look the best they can be.

Smaller Display Resolution

The Acer T232HL has a display resolution of 1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels pixels, and so are the Asus VA325H, the NEC MultiSync E221NBK and the Samsung S27E310H, which is 3 times smaller display resolution as the LG 38CB99W (3840 x 1600 pixels). More ...

6 Reasons For for Choosing the LG 38CB99W

A Lot Bigger Display Diagonal

The LG 38CB99W has a display diagonal of 38", however the Acer T232HL is only a 23" PC monitor (15" smaller), the Asus VA325H is only a 31.5" PC monitor (6.5" smaller), the NEC MultiSync E221NBK is only a 21.5" PC monitor (16.5" smaller) and the Samsung S27E310H is only a 27" PC monitor (11" smaller). More ...

The display diagonal is a measure of the size of the monitor. It is measured from one corner of the screen to the diagonally opposite corner of the screen.

A bigger display diagonal means that the screen will be larger and better for displaying lots of content or for seeing the detail in photos and videos.

3 Times Larger Display Resolution

The LG 38CB99W has a display resolution of 3840 x 1600 pixels pixels, which is 3 times larger display resolution as the Acer T232HL, the Asus VA325H, the NEC MultiSync E221NBK and the Samsung S27E310H (1920 x 1080 (1080p) pixels). More ...

'Display Resolution' indicates the maximum resolution that the monitor is capable of displaying. 'Resolution' is the amount of pixels that make up the image displayed on the screen.

A larger display resolution means that the image will be more detailed, crisper and contain less visual flaws such as blurring.

HDCP

The LG 38CB99W has an HDCP (as does the NEC MultiSync E221NBK), however the Acer T232HL, the Asus VA325H and the Samsung S27E310H do not have this feature. More ...

HDCP stands for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection - it is a protocol used by some encrypted DVD players to securely transfer information with no chance of interception.

A monitor with HDCP support will be able to read media from encrypted DVD players and other peripherals.

Built-in Speaker

The LG 38CB99W has a built-in speaker (as do the Asus VA325H and the NEC MultiSync E221NBK), however the Acer T232HL and the Samsung S27E310H do not have this feature. More ...

Built in speakers allow you to output sound through the monitor without any need for external speakers.

With built in speakers you can use the monitor like a TV for watch videos to listening to music.

Picture-in-Picture Support

The LG 38CB99W features Picture-in-Picture support, whereas the Acer T232HL, the Asus VA325H, the NEC MultiSync E221NBK and the Samsung S27E310H do not feature this benefit. More ...

'Picture-In-Picture' indicates whether the monitor is able to show one smaller screen inside the main screen - usually down in a corner.

This is helpful for things like YouTube videos or Skype calls - being able to surf while you chat to people or watch cat videos!

User Reviews Are Better

Based on 2 user reviews, the average review score of the LG 38CB99W is 100%, however the average rating of the Acer T232HL is 90% (based on 215 reviews), the average rating of the Asus VA325H is 95% (based on 17 reviews) and the average rating of the Samsung S27E310H is 84% (based on 23 reviews).

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG 38CB99W

Slower Response Time

The LG 38CB99W is a 14ms response time PC monitor. That's 9ms slower than the Acer T232HL and the Asus VA325H (5ms), 8ms slower than the NEC MultiSync E221NBK (6ms) and 13ms slower than the Samsung S27E310H (1ms). More ...

The response time on a PC monitor is a measure of how quickly the monitor reacts to image data sent by the computer's graphics card. Fast response times are particularly important for gamers, who should ideally look for a response time of 8 milliseconds or less.

A faster (shorter) response time is better because fast moving graphics will appear smoother and the gaming experience will feel more responsive.

Lower Typical Contrast Ratio

The LG 38CB99W has a low (1000:1) typical contrast ratio, and so are the NEC MultiSync E221NBK and the Samsung S27E310H, which is half the typical contrast ratio of the Asus VA325H (medium). We do not know what type of typical contrast ratio the Acer T232HL have. More ...

The contrast ratio is a measure of the ratio between the brightest part of the image and the darkest part of the image.

Monitors with a high contrast ratio will produce higher contrast, more vivid images.

Worse Kagoo Score

The LG 38CB99W has only received a Kagoo Score of 75, however the Acer T232HL scored 83, the Asus VA325H scored 87, the NEC MultiSync E221NBK scored 80 and the Samsung S27E310H scored 83.

$700 More Expensive

The LG 38CB99W is more expensive than the Acer T232HL by $533, more expensive than the Asus VA325H by $630, more expensive than the NEC MultiSync E221NBK by $681 and more expensive than the Samsung S27E310H by $700.

Less Retailers

Only 2 stores sells the LG 38CB99W, whereas 6 retailers sell the Acer T232HL, 9 stores sell the Asus VA325H, 4 stores sell the NEC MultiSync E221NBK and 3 sellers sell the Samsung S27E310H. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this PC monitor and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.
Nine Months Older

The LG 38CB99W is older than the Acer T232HL by nine months. The LG 38CB99W is the same age as the NEC MultiSync E221NBK.

98% Higher Running Costs Over Five Years

Over five years the running costs of the LG 38CB99W are $161 which is $66 more than the Asus VA325H and $80 more than the Samsung S27E310H. Show assumptions.

Worse Brand

LG PC monitors have an average rating of only 83.4%, whereas Samsung has an average rating of 84.5%.

The cheapest price that we found for the 38CB99W in the United States is $829.99 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.
